Vision for ICT

Our children are the future. We foresee a world where ICT skills and understanding will be a requirement for everyday life and a key element to success. Our children need to be ready and eager to meet this challenge. To facilitate this, ICT will be an embedded aspect of school life, ever present, working behind the scenes to motivate, facilitate and enhance every child’s learning. 

At Bidston Village C.E. Primary School our aims are to:

  • Allow children to achieve specific ICT skills as set down in the schools scheme of work and to celebrate their success

  • Allow children to appreciate the relevance of ICT as an integral part of everyday life and show ICT to be an essential tool for learning, communication, finding information and for controlling and understanding their environment.

  • Allow staff and children to gain confidence in and enjoyment from, the use of ICT through creativity and innovation.  

  • Allow staff to develop professionally by enhancing their teaching skills, management skills, administrative skills and communication.

  • Maintain a school website that promotes the school and its pupils, communicates with the community and celebrates our achievements.

  • Utilise the expertise of outside agencies to provide our children with opportunities not available within the school curriculum.

  • Provide opportunities of benefit to the wider community
